Perfect Crimes Meet the Perfect Match. In the City That Never Sleeps, one mind never rests. The eccentric detective Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) possesses an unquenchable thirst for intellectual puzzles and a ruthless instinct for justice. As a consulting detective to the NYPD, he takes on bizarre cases that baffle the most seasoned cops. But he can't do it alone. Holmes relies on Joan Watson (Lucy Liu), a former physician who's the one person who can keep up with his racing mind. Their partnership may be challenging, but it's nowhere near as difficult as the impossible mysteries that lead them on breathtaking chases through New York City's maddening maze. Join the hunt in the 24 episodes of the third season, collected in this six-disc set.

Some episodes are still interesting but after a while they start to lose appeal. I didn't finish all the disc's.

I liked this season much more than I thought I would, especially with the gloomy ending of last season. If the second season was all about the things that tore Holmes and Watson apart, this season is all about the things that bring them together again. If you, like me, balked at the thought of Sherlock taking on a new protege, rest assured that Kitty is a refreshingly complicated and wild character who fits right in and doesn't get in the way. Still not sure? She doesn't last past the second disc.

As adored and sublime as Benedict Cumberbatch's Sherlock is, as fun and revered as other actors have played him, I'm starting to think that Jonny Lee Miller might be my favorite Sherlock. (Gasp!) But I think it's because he's now had something like 70+ episodes to perfect this character, he's living in Sherlock's skin for so long now, that every flick of his fingers or tremor in his speech is just perfection. The actors around him are comparatively quite wooden- Jon Michael Hill doing the best at bringing a personality that doesn't get outshone- but I wonder if it's part of the direction, not the actors' fault. They maybe have to serve as a blank canvas around Miller so that he can shine and delight all the more.

Still, everyone seemed to gel together more this season, and the plots for each mystery were enjoyable.

Couldn't get past the first episode--it's got all too murder-she-wrote schlocky. There's a a reason that the BBC Sherlock has such short seasons--it enables the writers to maintain a consistent quality. In "Elementary" everything is telegraphed and witless--a really really really important witness (testifying against a cartel head) is guarded by ONE cop at a crucial juncture. So, guess what?
